Music Making from Scratch through Samba Drumming and Percussion SUM19/21

For teachers who need a new avenue to explore the delivery of music confidently – no musical experience necessary


On this course participants will be using pulse, tempo, tones, prepared instruments, homemade instruments, the human voice and the human body.  Background will be given on the use of percussion on a local and global scale.  The group will learn concentrating/focusing techniques, ways of exploring individuality in musical expression as well as experiencing first hand ensemble music making and the many elements surrounding performance. Continually exploring the element of self esteem through personal achievement.


The objective of the course is to give all of the participants the ability to use music/percussion in their classrooms with the participation of all students. All participants will develop new skills enabling them to instigate active music making in their class/school. (And all participants get to play drums for a week, which must be just good on its own)

A refund will only to given if the cancellation of your place is two weeks prior to course commencement. 

The refund will be less admin fee of €10


Participants who register for more than one course must complete the courses consecutively rather than concurrently
